Shoe box outreach coming in November

Temple’s annual collection of shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child will soon be here. Collection week will be Nov. 12-18, 2012. Our church’s goal this year is 400 boxes.

Operation Christmas Child is a division of Samaritan’s Purse. The organization’s website comments, “God uses Operation Christmas Child to touch the lives of … children living in dire conditions.” This year OCC officials hope to surpass 100 million shoe boxes distributed since 1995.

If you haven’t packed shoe boxes for OCC before, check this Web page for guidelines as to what should go in each box and how to prepare the boxes.
